With regard to inquests , i take it you are really only interested in ones while Harrison was licensee, and ones I have found in the newpapers are below:
Do have copies of others if you are also interested in them . A large proportion were from drowning in the canal. At that time it was common for inquests to be held of bodies at a pub near where the death happened. In fact some pubs were required to maintain a room in which the bodies could be stored till the proceedings. this caused complaints from many landlords
